The Aesculapius Award, named for the ancient Greek God of healing, recognizes outstanding organizations that have provided health information to the public through the use of World Wide Web (WWW) sites or television or radio public service announcements (PSAs). The award is intended to encourage excellence in health communication and promotion. The Health Improvement Institute invites participation on volunteer panels to judge WWW sites or television and radio PSAs. Each judge reviews about 8 -10 WWW sites or 5-6 PSAs at their own convenience. The deadline for entries is the first Friday after Labor Day. Judges are asked to complete their evaluations by the end of October.
